Security Without Nuclear DeterrenceBook - 2010
Twenty years after the end of the Cold War, civilisation is still held hostage by over 20,000 nuclear weapons in the five recognised nuclear weapon states plus India, Israel, North Korea and Pakistan. Underlying and driving this deepening global security crisis is an addiction to the doctrine of nuclear deterrence, cited by the United States, United Kingdom and France as the final, indispensable justification for maintaining their nuclear arsenals. Nuclear deterrence must therefore be challenged and alternatives offered in these three leading democracies if there is to be any serious prospect of eliminating nuclear weapons. Robert Green was a Commander in the British Royal Navy. He is now working co-ordinating the New Zealand Peace Foundation's Disarmament & Security Centre.
